      I have had tinnitus for 6 months after coming off a flight. It's severe. Have had several hearing tests — No hearing loss and pressure test normal.

      Never had tinnitus prior.

      The problem with audiograms is that they don't cover beyond a certain frequency so we could have hearing loss in high frequencies that don't figure on our audiograms. It's not enough relatable.
      I think that it's what cause my T, because my audiogram came perfect.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      one week after leg surgery plus hearing loss in higher freq.
      T can be caused by many things. Medications, ear wax, stress induced, hearing damage and the list goes on. First thing is to have a MRI with contrast to rule out any bone structural problems , tumors , etc. and then check for TMJ to make sure your jaw is not out of its proper form. Taking alot of aspirin or pain killers too much caffiene, neck or back problems....Hopefully you will be able to illiminate some of these things and find the culprit. Hopefully it will leave on its own and if not in time your brain will habituate to the sound and tune it out so it fade into the background although its still their if you bring your attention to it. Im in my 11th month with fairly loud T but it really doesnt bother me anymore for the most part....I always keep soft relaxing music or nature sounds to relax or sleep with. I find that exercise and going back to the things that I enjoy and keeping busy helps the most. Good luck and hope you have success !!!!!!

      July 11, 2016
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I had the same symptoms - high T, normal audiogram, normal ear pressure. But I had two other symptoms: my T changed when I turned my neck/head, and T would go down with alcohol (or any depressant).

      Based on this they said I had TMJ and put me in bite plates. If four months T has gone from 7 to about 2, and on the way down I could tell it was pulsating (I think I didn't notice at first because it was so loud). So you might want to check into that. Also, good thread here about somatic high-pitched T if you think your ears are normal:
